Missed Connections: Ornithological Edition

Written by

I am looking for the bird that was in the tree by Avery during the snow we had on Wednesday, January 28.

You looked so magnificent in the stormy weather, I wanted to take your picture. But I did not have my camera with me.

You had your feathers fluffed and looked cold, but your tail was the prettiest russet I had ever seen, and the elegant hook of your beak let me know that you were an independent bird that could take care of itself.

You may not have even seen me from your lofty perch, but I would spot you anywhere on campus if only you would come back.

I know you are wild and free. You are probably busy hunting elsewhere, and I should not be worried over a few days of your absence, but if I could see you again, my heart would soar as high as you in a spring thermal.

Wherever you are, I hope you are happy and healthy, well fed on all the rats, pigeons, and squirrels your crop can hold.

In other words, we have not seen our darling Hawkmadinejad for about two weeks. If you have seen her, or any time you do, let us know in the comments or send an email or pictures to our Hawkmadinebwog editor at [email protected].

  1. Eastern Gray Squirrel  

    Good riddance.

  2. wow...  

    you are truly obsessed with birds.

  3. random  

    Face it, the bird is dead!


  4. I captured him!  

    I now keep him in my room, and have trained him to fly messages to my friends' windows at night. Writing latin on scrolls and sending these out at night is cool.
    look out for him near the philosophy building...
